172. The Great Father [Books]
... edifices erected by Herbert Spencer, E.B . Tylor, and James G. Frazer (1 ) appear to rest exclusively on the assumption that one can learn the origins of theism by studying existing primitive cultures. The idea is that the civilized races of old must have first passed through "primitive" phases. Before the Hebrews, Greeks, or Hindus developed their elevated ideas of a supreme god, they must have possessed beliefs and customs similar to those of modern-day tribes of Africa, Australia, or Polynesia. Only by slow development, say these theorists, could a race rise above the ludicrous magic, totems, and fetishes of the savage. It is interesting that ...

... the completion of this volume, the entire series will be complete as well. The scholarly world without any further deliberation decided not to bring the Mycenaean Age down to the first millennium, but this decision did not eliminate the disturbing facts. At the same time another one-man battle was being carried on at the other end of the front. Greek antiquities, commonly regarded as belonging to the eighth and seventh centuries, were declared by a dissenting authority to date from the second millennium, to have been contemporaneous with the Mycenaean Age, and even to have partly preceded it. The dissenting scholar, W. Dörpfeld, from 1882 on participated with Schliemann in the excavations at Mycenae. ...

We will pass quickly over his treatment of the Books of Sibyl: the following samples of his comments on the text will serve to give some insight into his method and approach. "Line 512: [* !* Word in Greek] (poetic form of [word in Greek] helios) is certainly not the diurnal luminary here: for it appears [words in Greek] among the stars. In reality it is a meteor of the size of the sun , which flares threateningly in the sky. Such a meteor of the apparent diameter of the sun or ...

175. Mars Gods of the New World [Journals] [Aeon]
... planet Mercury, whereupon that planet would have come to be looked upon as the war-god par excellence. The end result of this fortuitous set of circumstances, culminating in the identification of Nergal with the planet Mars- so the argument goes- was that such traditions ultimately became diffused throughout the Old World upon the inheritance of Babylonian science by the Greeks and Indians. At first sight this argument has some appeal. Certainly there is no denying the fact that Babylonian astronomy had an enormous influence upon the early astronomical conceptions of the Greeks and other Old World cultures. The Greeks themselves admitted as much. (2 ) And analysis of the Greek and Indian traditions surrounding the various celestial bodies ...

... problems associated with the time of Ramesses III, the principal Pharaoh of the XXth Dynasty. Velikosvky reopens the question of the cemetery of Tell el-Yahudiya, which was dated by one of its excavators to the time of Ramesses III (Naville) and by the other (Griffith) to the Hellenistic period, and the apparently insuperable problem of the Greek letters of classical (4th century BC) form that were incised on the reverse of tiles of Ramesses III during the process of manufacture. Neither of these problems has been satisfactorily solved. Velikovsky proposes a solution by developing a model for Egyptian history which necessitates a lowering of the dates of the XXth Dynasty by no less than eight hundred ...

177. Star Words [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... signifying deviation. Is there no attestation for a Latin disastrum' (deviating star or planet)? (The suggestion here should be obvious.) The Shorter Oxford Dictionary (based on the O.E .D .) does not mention an Italian origin for the French, but goes directly from the French to Latin astrum' and Greek astron'. In fact, according to this dictionary, until 1669, disaster' had the sense an obnoxious planet'! ROGER WESCOTT jumps in: Ted Bond rightly perceives a connection between Indo-European nouns cognate with English "star" and Semitic names like Akkadian Ishtar. Most historical linguists, adhering to conventional chronology, either descry lexical ...

... itself as it existed at Stonehenge was unique, the calendar format it embodied is not. The 19year cycle wherein specific Moon phases are repeated on the same days of the year every 19 years has, at one time or another, formed the basis of calendar systems for numerous civilizations. The Babylonians, the Hindus, the Jews, the Greeks and the Romans each employed the scheme at some point in their history; in fact, several of these are still in use at the present time. Since the 19-year cycle is a universal celestial phenomenon, it is natural that well-defined, fundamental similarities will be found between calendar systems based on it. It is small, arbitrary and ...

... , the following needs to be said: The opening passage in the History of HERODOTUS [15] tells that the Phoenicians came to their country on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean from their original home on the shores of the Eritrean Sea, by which the Red Sea and also the Indian Ocean are known to have been named by the Greeks. This would explain such early reference. But in another Egyptian text Punt is referred to as being to the north of Egypt [16]. Besides, we should be mindful of the fact elucidated in Worlds in Collision that in historical times - and more than once - the cardinal points have been reversed, or as it is ...

From: Aeon VI:3 (Nov 2002) Home | Issue Contents Sky Woman Ev Cochrane A curious story, popular in Greek comedy and preserved in fragmentary fashion by various ancient writers, relates that Aphrodite once befriended an ugly old ferryman named Phaon who had served the goddess by helping her cross the Aegean. In return for his random act of kindness, the goddess rewarded the old man by magically transforming him into a handsome youth. [1 ] In addition to these basic facts, there are also hints that Aphrodite and Phaon were lovers. Thus, Athenaios reports that the Cytherean goddess was in love with the ferryman, citing Kratinos, Euboulos and Kallimachos as authorities ...
